Spelt Summer Apricot Crumble


The past few years my focus as a cook was always simple, but I found myself in a culinary identity struggle... Coming home this summer, I've realised I have been doing a lot of international dishes that didn't quite resonate with me. It might be everyones dilemma at some stage. I loved spending time in Slovenia, talking to the locals and seeing for the beauty of Slovenian cuisine for the first time. It's actually very true that you have to leave home to come back again. Even though I'm still searching for that personal culinary niche, one thing I'm certain of - I’m most interested in recipes that are viable for everyday home cooks with full lives—that’s the sort of recipe my cookbooks are full of. Sure, it’s fun to turn out something that takes all the pots in your kitchen and a week to prepare every now and again (or is it?), but as a working woman, the reality of how few hours there are in a day is one I’m intimately acquainted with. This Spelt Summer Apricot Crumble is the best of all the worlds: few Slovenian ingredients, 10 minute prep, and shockingly wonderful. It’s just pure magic, and it’s definitely going to be a must in my home until I get sick of it (not anytime soon).
